The American West and the World by means of Janne Lahti
Requirements: .PDF reader, 4.9MB
Overview: The American West and the World supplies an artificial creation to the transnational historical past of the American West. Drawing from the insights of new scholarship, Janne Lahti recenters the historical past of the U.S. West within the international contexts of empires and settler colonialism, discussing exploration, growth, migration, violence, intimacies, and concepts. Lahti examines established subfields of Western scholarship, corresponding to borderlands research and transnational histories of empire, in addition to rather unexplored connections between the West and geographically nonadjacent areas. Lucid and incisive, The American West and the World firmly situates the ancient West in its right kind international context.
